On Android devices you needed root access to get them out of your sight, if you didn't need any of those, which potentially voids the warranty, so a lot of users choose to just live with the unneeded nav apps or game zones the carriers are pushing onto your unsuspecting hardware. That's one of the prices to pay for a carrier subsidy, after all.
On the HTC EVO 3D, however, it seems that a different approach has been taken. Coming from users of the recently released 3D-enabled handset, most carrier apps, save for Sprint Zone, can be uninstalled just like you would do with a regular application you got from Android Market, including things like the Nascar or Blockbuster apps. This is certainly an interesting turn of events, since it's hard to believe it's just an omission on Sprint's part, although it could be. Here's to hoping it's actually the dawn of a new era.
